    Zylkene


    Zylkene is a natural product derived from milk proteins that has been proven to help your cat or dog cope in times of stress and adapt to change. Can be used for short periods or continuously if needed.

     

    Zylkene is a revolutionary new product used to help cats and dogs cope with stress. It is a food supplement made from a protein found in milk (the same molecule that helps babies relax after a milk feed). The active ingredient is a peptide (a protein molecule) which is able to bind temporarily to certain receptors in the brain. This has a calming influence similar in some ways to tranquillizer drugs, but without the side effects associated such as sedation or memory loss. It has been clinically proven to be effective in dogs and cats.

    It can be used for the following situations:

    - Environmental changes - e.g. new pet, new baby or house move
    - Multicat households
    - Cattery or kennel stay
    - Fireworks
    - Home Alone
    - Travel

    How to use Zylkene:


    For short term stress
    e.g travelling, begin Zylkene 24 hours before the journey and give a second dose 1 hour before travelling.

    For moderate length stress
    e.g. kenneling, fireworks, begin Zylkene one or two days before the anticipated stressful situation and continue for the duration of the stress.

    Zylkene can help manage long term stress. The initial period of use should be 1 - 2 months, and can be repeated as requried. You do not have to wean off Zylkene.

    Behavior modification techniques will also aid the management of stress related problems in dogs and cats.

    The average daily intake required 15mg/kg, given once daily. The pet's behavior should be re-evaluated after a 15-30 day course and the daily intake modified if necessary. Zylkene is palatable and easy to give - open the capsule and mix the powder with food or a treat such as cheese or tuna. The capsule can also be given whole.

    Zylkene 75mg
    Up to 5kg (11lb)- 1 capsule a day
    5-10kg (11-22lbs)- 2 capsules a day

    Zylkene 225mg
    10-20kg (22-44lb)- 1 capsule daily

    Zylkene 450mg
    20-40kg (44lb-88lb)- 1 capsule daily
    over 40kg (88lbs)- 2 capsules daily


    No side effects have been associated with the use of Zylkene and it can be given with other products. Zylkene is hypoallergenic, preservative free and lactose free. Zylkene is non-chemically manufactured to human pharmaceutical standards (GMP)

    Zylkene can help many dogs and cats cope with difficult situations such as fireworks, however there are some pets that have serious phobias and may need prescription medications. Even the slightest noise causes huge amounts of stress and an extreme reaction in these animals- some even hurt themselves. If this sounds like your pet, then make an appointment with your vet to discuss management- sometimes referral to a behaviourist is needed.

    This product should not be used in food producing animals.

    This is a PRESCRIPTION ONLY product. We will need to see a prescription before any items purchased can be dispatched. Please read the following information carefully before you order any prescription items (POM-V).

    Prescription Only products are identified in the products listing with the following image:

    Prescription Required Icon

    These items can be added to your shopping cart as usual, and we will debit the total cost of your cart from your bank account using your details. However, if you have any products in your cart that require a prescription we CANNOT dispatch your ordered items to you until we receive a prescription signed by your Veterinary Surgeon. Once we receive this prescription, we will despatch your products to you as soon as possible.

    You can print off a Prescription Form to have your vet fill out by clicking here, but we also accept standard Veterinary prescription forms as well. The prescription form must clearly state the owner’s and pet’s details, what drugs are authorised for the prescription, what quantity of drugs are authorised, how many repeats are authorised and the vet’s signature must also be valid.

    Once your vet has completed and signed the prescription, please attach it to your order confirmation and send it to us by one of the methods listed below so that we can dispatch your order.

    Please note that we will verify the authenticity of any prescription received with the prescribing Veterinary Surgeon.  It is an offence to forge or alter a Veterinary Prescription and any cases shall be reported to the Veterinary Medicine’s Directorate. We have a zero tolerance policy for forged or altered prescriptions and anyone found to be using such a prescription will have their account with us de-activated.

    Prescription Requests:
    Legislation was introduced in October 2005 that specified that veterinary surgeons must provide prescriptions if requested to do so as an alternative to supplying medicines directly from your veterinary surgery. Your veterinary surgeon is not allowed to discriminate between clients asking for prescriptions and those who don't. Veterinary surgeons are able to charge a nominal fee for writing the prescription. This charge varies but the average is between £6.00 - £8.00.

    Repeat Prescriptions:
    For long term medication, it is cost effective to ask your vet for a repeat prescription. This can be used as many times as the prescription states, without the need to revisit your veterinary surgeon. Repeat prescriptions may be for up to 12 months’ worth of medication (usually only for flea and worm products), however for most medications 6 months is the appropriate length.  It can however be restricted or extended to what your vet feels is appropriate. There are exceptions to the rule where they are valid for a shorter period of 28 days depending on the prescription medication.

    Please note that prescriptions are only valid for 6 months from date of issue i.e. you must start having your prescription filled within 6 months of prescription being issued. A handful of medicines (e.g. Epiphen) are classified as Scheduled Drugs and in these cases the prescription must be filled with 28 days of the date of signing and we must have the original prescription posted to us before dispatch of order.

    Most vets will write a repeat prescription if requested. The prescription will usually last between consultations. The prescription may hold a high quantity of medication, or may state 'Repeat x times' or 'repeat until .....'. If the prescription states 'Repeat' but does not specify how many times, we can only repeat it once. If you have a repeat prescription you can order as and when you need the medication until you have reached the total allowance.

    At Pet Drugs Online, we support repeat prescriptions. Once you have placed an order with us for a prescription product and we have received your signed prescription, we will log the prescription against your account. Your vet will specify how many times your prescription can be used. They may state the prescription is Single Use Only in which case we can only provide the total quantity once and then you will need to provide a new prescription.

    You can view your prescriptions from the My Account section of the website after you have logged in.

    Please generally allow up to 24 hours (Monday – Friday) to process, pack and despatch your order from our warehouse. Orders are dispatched Monday to Saturday (excluding bank/public holidays).

    Shipping:

    We offer a number of shipping methods and time-scales, including Courier Next Day Delivery for urgent items. Please note that these time-scales are approximate guidelines only, and do not include the additional 24 hours (Monday-Friday) required for processing, packing and dispatching orders from our warehouse.

    •    Royal Mail First Class – approx. 1-3 working days.

    Shipping Locations & Prices:

    We split our deliveries into three categories:  1) UK Mainland, 2) UK Highlands & Islands & 3) Overseas (Europe).  The location you select as your delivery address and the weight and value of the items ordered determines what options and prices you will be offered when checking out. ALL orders below £20.00 in value are subject to a £2.50 handling fee. Please see our Delivery page for more detailed information on our shipping options, weights and prices.

    *Shipping of refrigerated products - please note that all products that require refrigeration must be sent via Courier Next Day Delivery (£5.95 charge) to ensure that they arrive in optimum condition and cannot be sent internationally. All refrigerated items are sent with cold packs to ensure maintenance of temperature for the 24 hour delivery period. It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that someone is available to sign for the package and that the contents are placed in a fridge immediately after receiving the parcel. We cannot take any responsibility for the contents of the package after the allotted 24 hour delivery period (e.g. if no one is available to sign for the parcel at delivery and the item is sent to the local delivery office) we are not liable for the cost of a replacement order.

    What to do if your item does not arrive within expected time-scales

    The vast majority of our orders will arrive within the time-scales listed above once they have left our warehouse. However if you order has not been delivered within these expected time-frames after it has been despatched we ask that you please first check with your local post office and follow the guidelines below:

    Less than 4-5 working days after your order was processed:
    Please keep waiting for your order to arrive as it is most likely still in transit and may have been held up by an incomplete address, missing postcode or circumstances out of our control such as adverse weather conditions or strike action.

    5-10 working days after your order was processed:
    Your mail is now officially delayed and our advice is to check with neighbours that could have taken in the parcel on your behalf.  If your item requires a signature and no-one is available to sign for it, the postman or courier will take your item back to your local delivery office.  The postman should leave you a card to inform you of this.

    15 working days after your order was processed:
    Once 15 working days have passed since despatch, Royal Mail class your item as lost and we are then able to send out a replacement or to give you a full refund. Please send us an email complete with your order reference number and confirming that you have never received the item.  We will then take up this issue with the Royal Mail for compensation and your letter will be used as evidence. We cannot refund or replace items that the Royal Mail has lost until 15 working days have passed.

    Please ensure your delivery address is correct when placing an order.  If you require a signature, we advise you choose a delivery address where someone is guaranteed to be in to sign for your order, such as your work address.  We cannot take responsibility for undelivered items caused by incorrect address details.

    Returns Policy:


    Medications:

    We are not able to allow return of veterinary medicinal products because:

    a.    We believe it is wrong and dangerous to send out stock which has been returned by another pet owner. These items could have been stored incorrectly or worse tampered with.

    b.    As a licensed supplier of veterinary medications we are not allowed to. The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and Veterinary Medicines Directorate govern this.

    c.    As a business we do all that we can to bring low cost vet products to our customers - we cannot afford to give refunds where we have to dispose of the products. As a result, we advise that customers only order the medication they require, in case their pet’s medication needs change.

    Other products:

    We believe that all our items are of the highest quality and we endeavour to provide you with the best possible service. If you are not satisfied with our goods for any reason, you should notify Pet Drugs Online by telephone or email within 7 working days of receiving the goods and our customer service team will then be able to assist you.

    Returns procedure for non-medication items:

    1. Please send us an email to contact@petdrugsonline.co.uk to cancel the order.

    2. Return items using the address on the invoice received with the delivery. Please ensure you provide us with your name and contact details. In order to receive a refund the items must be unopened and unused, in original packaging and returned to us within 7 working days of date of receipt.

    3. We will contact you with details of your refund, once we receive and process the returned item. We will not compensate you for return postage unless the order is being returned due to our error.

    4. You will receive a refund for the order cost in full. Please allow 10 days for the money to reach your account. If your refund has not arrived after this time please contact our customer service team who will be happy to help.

    5. Genuinely faulty goods will be credited by refunding the amount paid for the item in full and return P&P. This does not affect your statutory rights.

    6. Please note that when returning an item the parcel is your responsibility until it reaches us, so we recommend that you send it by recorded post.
